GIVE GIFTS OF HOPE & CHANGE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
11th Annual Upper Cape Alternative Gift Market
Saturday, November 11, 2017, 11:00 to 3:00

Falmouth’s annual Alternative Gift Market is an unusual kind of shopper’s fair offering thoughtful, non-traditional gifts, while supporting those in need in our local community and communities in other parts of the world.
Buy a tax-exempt gift in honor of a loved one, a friend or someone else you wish to recognize, for the benefit of any of 10 local and 10 global charitable organizations. These nonprofit organizations, like the food pantries of Falmouth, Bourne, Sandwich and Mashpee, and worldwide organizations such as Water.org, help people on the Cape, in Massachusetts, and around the globe.
At the market’s Global Bazaar, you will find fine food products such as Equal Exchange coffee and chocolate, as well as hand-crafted items from the Sharing Foundation (Cambodia), and Afri-Root Collective, where “every purchase makes a difference in someone’s life.” Purchase of any of these fair trade items helps farmers and artisans in developing countries earn enough money to sustain their families and educate their children.
